"My wife and I just stayed 5 days at Dawn's cottage, and it could not have been better! The cottage is hidden behind her home. It's nice and quiet, great spa, which we used at least twice a day, great kitchen as we love to cook. The BBQ made it easy to prepare all our food, be it eggs for breakfast to local fish for dinner. Everything is close to the property, so easy to get around. Dawn has thought of everything. Towels for the beach, snorkel equipment to use, even a small flash light and bottle opener in the extra backpack she provides for you. Dawn made everything so easy and it just felt like home. If you end up booking some time here, make sure to read the book of history on the house and property, again very well documented and really a pleasure to read and learn more about the area. Thanks Dawn and see you again next year!!!"

"This property is exactly what we were looking for. It has a resort feel, so you are able to relax on the property without having to go all over the place for entertainment. However, if you do want to go around the island, you are centrally located to make your traveling easy. I have to say that the owners were extremely accommodating which got our stay off to a great start. We had to check out of our previous hotel at 10:00AM. We weren't quite sure what to do with ourselves for the day, so I gave the owners a call and they authorized an early check in at a moments notice. I can't tell you how much that enabled us to make it an enjoyable day.
The unit itself is such a great location. It is tucked away from traffic so you don't get anyone looking into your unit, but has a great oceanfront view. You can leave the sliding glass door open and get the sound of the waves in your unit, which I personally love.You can also watch the sunrise from your lanai. The location of the unit also allows a quick trip down the stairs to the pool and bar area, or if it's the morning and you want an even better sunset view it's just a quick stroll to the beach.
The beach is not swimmable, but that didn't bother us. With all the pools and lounge chairs we were still able to relax on the property and hear the sound of the waves. If you want to swim at a beach, there is a beach park just a short drive away.
We just left last week and are already talking about returning to this property. I would recommend KBR to anyone who asks, and especially this unit. Definitely a great value!"

"After staying there it's easy to see why everyone gives it 5 stars. The house is absolutely clean and comfortable. It is very well stocked with quality products (Dawn, Clorox, Body Glove etc.). It is well located too, close to the south of the island and not a terribly long drive to the north. Checking in after hours was easy. It is very well decorated, we ran into no problems at all. The 3 air conditioning units work really well and certainly make it so much more comfortable. We rented 2 more places in Hawaii (on the Big Island) during our 2-week-long vacation and we all agree this was the best of them all. If we ever go back to Kauai that is definitely where we are staying again."

"Our family recently stayed at this cliffside house in July. The location is less than five minutes from the Lihue airport but we never experienced air traffic noise. We walked to the elevator which is about 500 ft from the house and which takes you directly to the Marriott Beach Resort grounds. The beach here is one which is protected from the open ocean and which our boys (7,9, 9)loved playing in. Kayak rentals and even surf lessons can be set up from the beachside shop here. The home even has some boogie boards which they utilized extensively. Im not sure if its the time of year, but this was not a crystal clear beach but the sands were perfect, the pool service from the Beach Resort was prompt and the food and drinks were great. We even utilized the small cooler in the garage to bring our own drinks and snacks to the beach. All beaches are public including this one so many folks bring their own things.
This is a three level home with the main floor consisting of an open, one-level kitchen with a comfortable living room overlooking Kalapaki beach. This is an air conditioned home. Due to high electrical costs in Hawaii the owner does make a point to ask that utilization be reduced when the home is not occupied. I appreciate prevailing winds but I don't like to be hot, especially on vacation. This was a nice plus as many rentals are not air conditioned. The home was immaculately clean upon our arrival. Our three boys and niece had ample room to relax. The kitchen is well appointed with a large stainless steel refrigerator which we stocked with groceries from Costco which is less than 10 minutes away (has all the same things our Costco had plus a few regional foods). We only used the entertainment system in the living room which is equipped with a nice variety of electronic equipment including a Roku. The bedrooms are huge and each comes with their own full size balcony. You can host a dinner party in each of the master bathrooms.
Other perks are the full sized washer and dryer and the outdoor shower.
Improvements that can be made include placing a regular bed in the loft bedroom off the main floor. This currently has pull out couch which was left in bed mode the entire time and which has little use as a couch.
We will plan on returning to this home which has a great location, incredible views and offers modern, clean luxury in a 2800 sq three level layout with AC!"
